Description: Dante and Erlinda Agatep arrived from the Philippines in October, 1969. Dante is from Ilocos Sur and Erlinda is from Batangas, both of them grew up in Manila. They came to the U.S. with little money in their pockets and a dream of raising a family in America. They started in San Francisco's Tenderloin district, then moved to the Inner Sunset neighborhood, and finally settling in the East Bay suburb of Hayward, CA. Here they raised their 3 sons Ronald, Dennis, and Davin. Most of the footage was shot by Dante who, like most Fathers, was the family documentarian.
